Good Pies, but Very Unreliable & Unprofessional

Their pies are excellent, so while I would like to write a great review about the Sweet Chef bakery, sadly, I cannot because their business practices are awful... The Sweet Chef bakery is TOTALLY unreliable!!! If you are in the neighborhood and want to pick up a pie they currently have on display, you will be in for a treat. Whatever is on hand at their store, will be well made and very tasty. Unfortunately, that is the extent of their worthiness. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER under any circumstances order a pie, cake, or any other form of dessert from them for a special occasion where timeliness is important. They have a 2 days in advance policy for special orders, and most of their better products require a special order. No matter how many times you call to confirm, your order will be either be late, wrong or most likely forgotten. No apology will be offered, merely pitiful excuses for why they couldn't hold up their end. Great for a snack on the go, but their lack of professionalism here prevents me from recommending them for more serious pastry needs.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
